Warning: Immature Content! -to be published posthumously I think..

A few books I have been thinking of writing, perhaps each idea can be a chapter in the larger book. To be in the positive frame-of-mind, instead of saying: "More technology without more awareness is not good" I have to turn it around and say: "I believe certain awareness is needed with the amazing new technologies."

So to be healthy-outlook the title could be "What technology teaches us we need" or something like that. The chapters - previous book ideas - are:

  • Warning! Immature Content! - a child see's trashy foolishness and thinks that this is how mature people think? Call it immature content - not mature! • Obama's efforts with "The Real World" show with drunk teens in hot tubs - and he was powerless.
  • The Illiterati - how the digital-devide is no more, and is it a good thing? Those who think everyone should have every access aren't careful because bad people shouldn't have every tool.
  • The Endarkenment - how we are all made more serfs unlike the Enlightenment which ended some surfdom.
  • So-Called-Music - showing how music soothes the savage beast, but now savage beasts make it. Additionally, when DJs can make 50 million a year, yes million, and music programs are slashed everywhere, does anyone say that something is wrong?
  • Pop Con - how everything is turned into a popularity contest, and how great artists are nothing like this. 
  • Artsport - similar to the last, the idea is that great (dedicated hard work) art is not popular.
  • Infocracy - how information is the new currency, how to google is the key.
  • The Box - how "thinking outside of the box" is the same as thinking outside of technology, no longer done by pop culture. Everyone is stuck in "the box," cell-phone, pad, pod, gadget or device. 
  • Survival of the Vicious - leaders need to explain clearly how if a country moves in lots and lots of people, then a vote is taken to change the name of the area, this is not fair. It seems totally democratic - though sneaky. Now if Tirol, Scotland or some region wants to autonomize, is this what Crimea is wanting? Somebody needs to explain when this is OK, when it is not.
  • Netiquitte - the proof that our form of democracy is bankrupt is comments on YouTube videos or any comments anywhere. Why are people allowed to have foul mouths - and foul comments?
  • Sullivanian Art - can it go back to a dull host with no personality, no voting whatsoever at all, and great artists get the opportunity to be seen? I sure miss dull old Ed Sullivan.
  • Stupid Laws - more and more there are things so stupid that there should be laws against them. 
  • Liberate Discrimination - the word discriminate was hijacked and now no one can discriminate. "Never discriminate!" has made people unable to discriminate at all (good acting vs. poor, music vs. junk, philosophy vs. cult brainwashing). Discriminating tastes need to be brought back. 
  • How To Protect Messengers - Darwin was smart to not publish until after he passed away. Can the world evolve to where messengers such as Darwin are safe and appreciated in their day? 

These are just a few of the chapters / books I may write, or may not if messengers are treated poorly.
